Rubber bands identical to those in V5

STEAM for Vietnam Foundation (Event Partner)

<R6> Hi, Is it allowed to use rubber band that is identical to those in V5/VEX IQ kits to replace the bands in the kits but broken during usage.

It seemed that we need to use tons of rubber bands and they're so easily broken and expensive to buy in bulk.

Many thanks

In the future, please review the Q&A Usage Guidelines before posting, specifically point 1, "Read and search the manual before posting,” and point 3, “Quote the applicable rule from the latest version of the manual in your question.” Often, you'll find that by quoting the rule, you'll answer your own question.

Clause H of rule <R7> permits the use of "Rubber bands that are identical in length and thickness to those included in the VEX V5 product line (#32, #64 and 117B)."
